Toyota Material Handling Manufacturing France choose KEONYS to implement Dassault Systèmes’ platform 3DEXPERIENCE®


Toyota Material Handling Manufacturing France (TMHMF), is a member of the TICO group (Toyota Industries Corporation) based in Ancenis (France). The company is specialized in developing and designing Toyota forklifts. 90% of Toyota forklifts sold are produced in Europe in Sweden, France and Italy factories.



TMHMF needed to change its product design methods in order to meet the expectations of the highly regulated and very competitive European market.The challenge is to adapt and personnalize forklifts according to European market specific needs. Therefore, was necessary to change the designing and manufacturing methods.


Problematic issues

  • Strong competition on the European market
  • Stay aligned with the company’s business drivers
  • Lack of initiatives in product design and industrialization


Customer needs

  • Need to set up a single data repository
  • Better management of BOMs
  • Better management of the many product options



Ad part of its digital transformation, TMHMF has opted for the CDA approach, (Company Digital Alignment) of KEONYS and the 3DEXPERIENCE® solution of Dassault systèmes. This study allows the complete analysis of customer needs, of the various processes and the company’s environment. Also, it allows to identify the areas of progress and define the final scope of the project in line with the strategic issues of the company. The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform will enable an easier collaboration between TMHMF’s various sites across Europe and in real time.  



Following the CDA study, a roadmap was established to implement 3DEXPERIENCE® platform as a unique information source. This project will enable TMHMF to apply its evolution strategy by developing its design and production methods.

      • The set up of a single repository of data
      • Better management of BOMs and product options
      • Better collaboration
      • Capitalization of knowledge
      • Optimizing time and prodctivity gain
  •  Adaptation of our products to the specific needs of their European customers in much shorter time


Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE®’s collaborative platform offers various software solutions around a single interface that allows collaborative data exchange in real time to support a product throughout its life cycle (design, simulation, production, scheduling, etc.).
